Priority Bittern and Waterbird Project
This 4-year project will create a wetland haven at Schwenkes Dam, Greenbushes, to attract critically endangered waterbirds to inhabit a former mine site.
Bringing Back the Blackwood
Protecting riparian vegetation along the Blackwood River and its tributaries through fencing, stock exclusion and revegetation will result in improving water quality and creating wildlife corridors along this icon water body.
A boardwalk across Schwenke's Dam in Greenbushes, at the BBG's WaterBird project site, will enable visitors to connect to the Greenbushes Loop Trail and observe our wetland wildlife up close. Construction to be completed by March 2017.
A Better Blackwood: Strategic Improvements
This project will produce a new 10 year strategy for the Blackwood Catchment including 6 updated management plans for the zones across the 23 million hectare area. A series of training workshops in organisational governance, financial management and social media engagement will also be held.
Funded through SWCC, this project delivers fencing, revegetation and weed control to improve riparian and salt affected farm land whilst improving native habitat.
West Arthur On-Ground Works
Assisting private landholders to protect and conserve threatened flora and fauna, whilst improving the quality of water discharge from farmlands to local wetlands, lakes and the Arthur, Beaufort and Blackwood Rivers.
Protecting, Resotoring & Regenerating the Blackwood River
This project aims to protect the iconic Blackwood River against salinity and erosion problems linked to historic agricultural practices, and builds on decades of landholder and community awareness of improved land management practices for river restoration.
Maximising Benefit from Crop Residues
This project focuses on stubble retention practices to improve soil condition in mixed farming systems of south west WA that sow annual winter cereal crops.
Biodiversity Conservation & Monitoring at Trigwell Bridge
Funded by the Australian Government's 25 Years of Landcare program, this project will protect, improve and monitor fauna species while raising community awareness about natural asset management. Includes fauna monitoring, establishing biodiversity corridors and feral animal control.
The project worked with landholders to protect and enhance ecological linkages within the wheatbelt landscape of the South West region,Â focusing on conservation of threatened fauna.

Regenerating the Wattle Creek Catchment
This project addresses ongoing problems with rising groundwater, salinity, vegetation loss and erosion at a property in Kulikup by fencing and revegetating 25 ha of creeklines.
Managing Salinity in Dinninup
The Dinninup Catchment is prime agricultural land and a major tributary to the Blackwood River. This program assists landholders to manage salinity and waterlogging on their properties by providing funding for fencing off affected areas from stock and revegetating with appropriate native species.
